"Sunny Afternoon"

I can just see myself sitting under on of the trees, being absorbed by the water view and feeling at peace with my world.  This painting was a lesson in finding and laying in the masses, putting in the light and finally adding a just a few details (had to restrain myself and not get too fussy).  How many times I have read that yet with a some help from a great local artist Bill McCoy, it all came together.  Thanks Bill.

Thanks for the complement. It encourages me when someone enjoys one of my paintings. I visited your site and was impressed. I too am a fan of the Native Indian flute. I listened to one in a preserve near here at dusk and as I closed my eyes I was transported to the plains. Such a beautiful and haunting sound.

I find the Native Indian Flute very relaxing and I have listened to it while in my woods. Isn't it a great way to unwind and leave your everyday stress behind :)

Honor, I understand about the"putting in too much detail" thing! You did a great job of restraining yourself--haha! Seriously, this painting has everything anyone needs for the "story". I like the golden light on the house. Good work!
